The application is the first step to see if you are potentially the right match for the animal of interest.This is not a guarantee/commitment of adoption. Our adoption process involves a home check, adoption contract & adoption fee of $350-$550 for dogs depending on breed/age and $125 for cats. Adoption fees are non-refundable.  Fees include spay/neuter, vaccines, de-wormer & microchip.

**LA / Ventura County adoptions only.  We don't transport our animals for their safety.**
